Welcome to Pinellas. Where Opportunity Meets an Unparalleled Quality of Life.

Florida is world-renowned as a top state for businesses and for an undeniably business friendly climate. In Pinellas County, a welcoming community to businesses and newcomers is also our specialty. Attracted by the mild, sub-tropical climate and 35 miles of white sand beaches, nearly a million people have made Pinellas County their home. Diverse communities in Pinellas range in population from more than 252,000 in St. Petersburg to slightly more than 100 in Belleair Shore, and nearly all capitalize on living in a waterfront paradise. As an established county, the significant infrastructure – including schools, utilities and roadways – is already in place. Pinellas is also well connected with regional access via Interstate-275, two international airports, and the largest port in Florida.

The signature soft, white sand, warm, emerald-green waters, lush parks, vibrant downtowns, and artistic and cultural gems aren’t just for entertaining tourists, it’s a way of life. The community offers an extraordinary quality of life, diverse housing options and high-quality colleges and universities. With its outstanding cultural, recreational and sports facilities, incomparable parks and beaches, and events, Pinellas provides a quality of life that you can enjoy all year round.
